Interested in being a more effective mentor for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows? This six-session series offers a fun and informative way for all teachers to learn methods to inspire, manage and professionally develop their mentees. Participants will join a faculty mentoring community to share ideas and experiences to promote student and research success.
Effective mentoring is a learned process that takes time and experience. It is not taught in graduate schools, although most teachers remember the good and bad mentorship they went through! Effective mentors listen to the unique qualities and needs of their mentees and how they evolve over time. Indeed, meaningful mentoring requires that we embrace diversity and recognize that we can continually improve as mentors for our students and post-docs. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to mentoring, but this six-part workshop series allows professors to learn more about their mentoring style and how to improve communication and expectations with mentees. .
Teachers must commit to attending all six sessions. Lunch will be offered and the workshop sessions will be interactive.
